New Jump Stars Victory Versus trailer is full of shonen glory
Jump Ultimate Stars will forever be my favorite handheld game in the history of gaming. With Jump Stars Victory Versus, Namco Bandai is taking the shonen crossover into the next generation on modern-day consoles in 3D.
Announced last year, Jump Stars Victory Versus is a brawler for the PS3 and Vita pitting Shonen Jump's most diverse characters against each other.
Updating its roster for the time, its new trailer introduces relatively recent Shonen Jump hero Toriko in additions to the returning characters like Goku, Gintoki, and Kenshin.
Being in 3D, the game looks like it will be more akin to the Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi games or One Piece: Grand Adventure than the side-scrollers of Super and Ultimate Stars. That's good though, because I love those games!
As psyched as I am for Victory Versus, I hope the game is able to provide a good roster. Hopefully the characters showcased in this trailer is only a fraction of the number that will be in the final product. Jump Ultimate Stars had every major and minor character you could think of from every major Shonen Jump publication you could think of. I doubt it can even come close, with all of Ultimate Star's support characters (some of which aren't even from action series), but it'd be nice to see a similar amount of effort.
I would expect Namco Bandai to show Kenshiro, their other uber-popular icon. We all know he's going to be in it. They already made two Fist of the North Star games and it wouldn't be a Shonen Jump game without him.
Well I'm not really familiar with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure so I suggested Yoh cause his shaman ability is a lot like Yu's persona
Didn't know Kenshin and that cop guy were in Shonen Jump.
If Train is in this game, well, purchase assured.
What's wrong with not being next gen? Unless you don't have either Vita or PS3. Then it becomes understandable.
oh god please let arale be in this game
C'mon, Funimation is waiting 2 years to adapt the DBZ movie, and took forever to just get the new DBZ game out. That is one right holder, many of the others are Viz, and that is just the first few serieses. TvC barely came out in the states and I imagine that had a lot to do with the fact that more people knew about TvC than they did about the actual characters. Shonen are so popular they will all want cuts in the profit, and I don't think a lot of them will get English VAs back, since some of these have been over for nearly a decade. So I hope so, but I doubt it highly.
Thanks a combination of this and the Korean release means it is possible.
Re-reading this I sound kind of rude. I'm not being mean, I just don't think it's likely at all that he'll get in personally.
Hope it makes it oversees, cannot wait to see Yuseke Urameshi
It wouldn't make much sense though. The series did badly enough that the series got canceled and the creator had to rush the ending. They have 45 years worth of manga to choose from, I'm not sure why they'd choose Shaman King.
Please God let this game make it overseas!
Oh who am I kidding? That'll never happen...
I think I'll main Gintoki or Luffy since I like Gintama and One Piece.
Shut up and take my money!
I'd be hyped for this game, but like the Jump Super Star series, this game will never get localized. Too bad it's not on PS4.
Still needs Kenshiro (Fist of The North Star) and Dio Brando (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure)
looks pretty good though it's too bad the characters aren't cell shaded like in the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series.. mainly i'll be using Ichigo probably, since i love the Bleach series the most of any anime..hopefully they put another bleach character or 2 to play as in as well
Doesn't make it any less nostalgic for people. I'm really banking on Yoh too, it's pretty much right up there with Dragon Ball for me on the nostalgia meter.
Toriko is amazing.
Yoh? If he gets in over Jotaro I will be extremely upset, considering Shaman King is just a poor man's jojos.
